Try the following measures.
1. Gargle your throat, 2-3 times daily, with warm saline.
2. Steam inhalation with Cap. Carvol plus dissolved in the water.
Carvol Plus is a capsule which is available in the pharmacies.
You can dissolve it in hot water before inhaling the steam.
3. Avoid drinking cold water.
4. Avoid having refrigerated food.

If this does not improve in 5-7 days after following the steps, you will need to consult an ENT specialist.
He/she will be able to find exactly where the infection is starting from, and then treat it accordingly.
